Valentina Lisista

When: Fri., Dec. 11, 8 p.m. 2015

Originally from Kiev, pianist and YouTube star Valentina Lisitsa currently calls New Bern home. For this recital, she tackles a mess of short-form works, mostly by Alexander Scriabin but with some Chopin thrown in, too. Her selections focus largely on the first half of Scriabin’s career, charting his evolution from a harmonically saturated Chopin descendent into something more obscure and gnomic. And while Lisitsa doesn’t really touch his most experimentally dissonant works, her selections show Scriabin pushing 19th-century harmony to its breaking point. —Dan Ruccia

Price: $10-$38
